** An example featuring repeated PleaseSelectNewCityName: In 1869, a Welsh fellow named Hughes established a mining and factory town on the Seversky Donets River in modern-day Ukraine (or Novorossia, depending on who you ask), which was named Yuzovka in his honour; this city grew and grew and eventually became a major industrial hub. After the RedOctober, it was seen as unfitting to have a foreign capitalist's name on a major city like this, so the name was changed in 1923-24 (some say it was briefly Trotsk, after Trotsky, in late 1923), first to ''Stalin'' and then to ''Stalino'' (in the late 20s or early 30s; it's not clear). Finally, in 1961 (after Stalin's death and denunciation), the city was given its current name, Donetsk, after the river.

* Castle Ironfist in (the old setting of) ''VideoGame/MightAndMagic'' and ''VideoGame/HeroesOfMightAndMagic'' was the name for the castle, city and region of the Ironfist dynasty, founded by Lord Morglin Ironfist... although to be fair, if ''Heroes I'' was any guide he founded the castle and city, and the region didn't seem to ''have'' a local name beforehand. He also stopped with the egopolis business there, naming his new kingdom after the continent it dominated, Enroth.
